Sunday's Lyrics - CAPTAIN OF OUR FATE

We are the captain’s of our fate.  We are not merely passengers in this thing called life.  And there will certainly be times when we are tested and tried, but it is how we pick ourselves up from those setbacks and push forward that really defines who we are.
The beauty in children is their ability to believe in the possibilities.  Their limited experiences with setbacks and failures allow them to know that the world is their oyster.  However, somewhere between that time when we were children and now as adults, our focus may shift from possibilities to the obstacles in our path.  Why??  Simply because we may have experienced failure one too many time and have created shackles that hold us back.  It may be enough to abandon dreams, settle and even give up.  But, the truth of the matter is you are not really living if that is what you choose. 
You must be willing to weather the storm, push through the bumps in life and dare to be as great as you are able to be.  The song “Hold On” is an oldie but a goodie and really paints the picture that what we think about we bring about.  It’s never too late to be what it is you wanted to be and to live the kind of life you’ve always dreamed about.  The question is are you brave enough to see past your current situation and start taking actions to change your circumstance?
Hold on for one more day and break free from your chains.
Defining my fate,
Nicole

Hold On by Wilson Phillips


I know this pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don't ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

[Chorus:]
Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things'll go your way
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You've got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin' your worries pass you by
Don't you think it's worth your time
To change your mind?

[Chorus]

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and
Break free the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and you
Break free, break from the chains

Some day somebody's gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don't you know?
Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
If you hold on

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day,
If you hold on
Can you hold on
Hold on baby
Won't you tell me now
Hold on for one more day 'Cause
It's gonna go your way

Don't you know things can change
Things'll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can't you change it this time

Make up your mind
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on
